Was "Curse of the Swamp Creature" Really supposed to be a remake of "Voodoo Woman"? Ive seen both movies and unlike other Buchanan flicks I see very little silarity between the two. "Mars Needs Women" also seems to be an original story, but correct me if I'm wrong. Note: in the film "Pajama Pary", the "Eye Creatures" make an appearance (at least the monster suits) a la "Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow",but I don't think it was one of Larry's films. It did have Tommy Kirk, though.

Hard to say, as I haven't seen Voodoo Woman in ages, but I've read that the similarity is only superficial. It may be possible that Mars Needs Women is a partial remake and/or sequel to Pajama Party, as both are AIP films, but Larry B had nothing to do with Party. We'd have to consult the #1 source of all things Buchanan, namely Rob Craig's book.

The most "original" of the Azalea films was It's Alive! (1969), based on a previously unproduced AIP script by Richard Matheson, written for Peter Lorre and Elsa Lanchester. When Lorre died, the project was shelved, until the script was later dusted off and sent to Buchanan by AIP for his use.
